“What’s Your Name?”

On the next edition of Life Elsewhere we’ll explore who you are. Our guests will include an expert on the history and meaning of surnames,  a specialist in genealogy and an author who unraveled the secrets of his family’s past with DNA testing. Plus you’ll hear the story of how a family name that began as Wind, changed to Wynn and now, centuries later, the family has chosen to revert to the original form.  All this and The Hit That Never Was.
